Welcome to Shetland. . .Tuesday Travels

on

This welcome sign is in the town of Lerwick.  We arrived in Lerwick aboard one of the Northlink ferries.

The day we arrived the weather was beautiful.

Lerwick One day while we were exploring the area around the harbour at the centre of the town we saw several of the tender vessels which were used to ferry passengers from the large cruise ship which was anchored in the bay.

Lerwick is a lovely town with many quaint buildings and narrow cobbled streets. This laneway was a delight.

Many of you would know of the TV series called “Shetland” based on the books by Ann Cleeves.While we were in Shetland I was fortunate to be able to attend this evening with Ann Cleeves, an added bonus on our trip to Shetland.  We were also able to see part of an episode being filmed while we were there.

You will recognize this house if you have watched the series.

This next building is the Police station in the series.We spent nine days in Shetland and loved every minute.  More in the next post.

  1. Oh so envious. Shetland is on the list for travels. Have always wanted to visit but after the boks and then the series the longing has become stronger.
